As much as I despised him for many things that happened during his time at the club it is unfortunate the way things have turned out. 

Hopefully this will allow us to move on and start to repair the damaged relationships the club has with the fans / community / local businesses etc.

What is NAPM?

Not A Penny More

A number of fans decided that they wouldn't give the club / hotel any more money until MJ was gone.

He still owns the majority of club and park hotel. 

Only celebrate if he gives back what he has stolen

From Stephen McGowan... Daily Mail

 

Lee McCulloch will be appointed as the club's new manager in the middle of next week.

 

His appointment will follow Friday night's shock departure of former chairman Michael Johnston from the board of directors.

 

Negotiations to tie McCulloch down to a permanent contract will move towards a conclusion after Saturday's final home game of the season with Ross County. 

 

He has been awaiting news of his fate after keeping the club in the top flight and sources told Sportsmail that negotiations were held up while Johnston's status was resolved .......due to debt restructuring deal with Bank of Scotland, Johnston will retain his 40 per cent shareholding until 2019.

 

Following a lengthy campaign to force the club secretary from the board of directors, supporters groups on Friday night welcomed a fresh start for the club following years of disharmony. 

 

The board now consists of Billy Bowie, holder of a 40 per cent stake, and fellow director John Kiltie.

 

The club recently penned a six-figure sponsorship deal with QTS and are likely to trigger new negotiations with businessman and fan Chris McMail after he offered an investment of £750,000 on condition Johnston stepped down.

 

 Barry Richmond of the Killie Trust said: 'We think this is the opportunity we have been waiting for to turn things around.

 

'People are genuinely sorry for Michael Johnston, as you would be anyone, for what happened with his wife. That has clearly influenced his decision. But we can now begin to look to a new future.

 

We went from average gates of 9,000 to just over 3,000 and it's been getting worse. Michael Johnston's presence has been the catalyst for much of the decline.

 

'He still has his shares and where they go may be the next issue, but as it stands he has no operational control of the club and his shareholding will only come into play for constitutional issues.'

Seen some reports that we are going to sign Kirk Broadfoot once McCulloch is confirmed as manager.

From The Express - 25/05/17

 

Aberdeen Transfer News : Kilmarnock plan raid on Pittodrie.

 

Kilmarnock are keen on Aberdeen striker Miles Storey, Scott Burns reports.

 

The Englishman will be part of the Dons’ Scottish Cup Final squad to face Celtic on Saturday but has been on the fringes at Pittodrie this season and has only been involved in 18 games.

 

Storey, 23, had been looking for a January exit but that collapsed when Aberdeen failed to sign Stevie May from Preston.

 

Killie caretaker boss Lee McCulloch is a big admirer and feels his pace would work well alongside Kris Boyd.

 

However, Aberdeen are due to return early for pre-season training ahead of the Europa League qualifiers and are unlikely to let Storey leave until they sign a replacement.

 

McCulloch is also interested in Rotherham defender Kirk Broadfoot, 32, who has a year left on his contract. The pair were team-mates at Rangers.

 

IMHO... If he can produce his ICT (loan) form, 13 goals in 37 games, he would be a decent signing.
